Brent and Laura have spent the last 30 years involved in the tourism industry in Botswana and Zimbabwe. They were there when long dusty dirt roads were normal and when most safaris were run out of South Africa.

Laura is from the UK and worked in the travel industry there for several years before moving to South Africa where she spent 18 months in Durban. After this, the “real bush experience” beckoned and Laura headed to Botswana, initially to work at a safari camp in Maun. She began Travel Wild Botswana (now Sense of Africa Botswana) over 15 years ago.

Brent first came to Maun in 1986 as a professional safari guide with Afro Ventures Safaris. During these early years, he conducted overland safaris throughout the parks and reserves of Botswana, spending most of his time on safari in the Okavango Delta and the Chobe Game Reserve.

Brent always hankered to return the country of his birth and persuaded Laura of its potential and bright possibilities. In early 2011 they returned and opened Travel Wild Africa.
